"Queering Our Interface" examines the inherent hetero/gendernormative foundation that our computers, and more specifically, our internet’s interface is built on. This work serves as both a critique of the current human/computer relationship as a manifestation of hetero/gendernomativity under capitalism, and also an attempt to reimagine what our relationship with the machines we use might look like. Specifically, by reimagining our relationship as one of mutual and non-transactional care, these interfaces are inherently subverting the prevailing norms markers of technology, namely efficiency, utility, and productivity. How might creating alternative human/computer relationship open up possibilities for relationships dynamics in the physical world?
